bare bones, no skins

Does anyone make a ROM that has ZERO fluff? I can't stand touchflo! I have tried to remove it. I use this phone primarily for business and I only use a handful of programs. Touchflo just slows everything down and kills my battery. I would like ROM the allows me to only have what I use and get rid of everything else. Keep it simple!

I only use:
  • Phone
  • Contacts
  • Calendar
  • Messaging
  • Notes
  • Office Mobile
  • Opera Browser
  • Pictures & Video
  • Google Maps
  • Bubble Breaker
  • ActiveSync
  • Calculator
The issues I currently have are:
  • System / Ring volume program not as functional as the Mogul
  • Butt dialing! Data reception unlocks the phone.
  • Camera so slow it is useless
  • Comm Manager slow and frustrating.
I find that I am constantly going into Sounds & Notification and changing the setting for vibrate or silent. The System / Ring interface doesn't cut it. My biggest issue recently is butt dialing! I was getting lots of email on Saturday while mowing the lawn. Without my knowledge I was calling my fiance' up to 3 times a minute. After 27 calls she had to turn off her phone! It also appears that any of the programs that have been customised for touchflo are so slow I just wont use them.

Basically, I love the screen, keyboard and the GPS... but I miss the simplicity of my Mogul!

Re: bare bones, no skins

go to settings, today, items, and uncheck touchflow. that is a start. as far as the butt dialing...make sure the screen is off and keep the screen pointed away from the offending dialer. I run htc home for most of the same reasons.
